Peer-Reviewed Studies

Read the Most Recent Peer-Reviewed Studies for TAP Oral Appliances

TAP devices are the most researched oral appliances on the market with more than 45 independent peer-reviewed published studies and counting.

 

Since 1997, all clinical trials involving the TAP have been conducted by independent investigators who do not have a financial interest in the device. Each study was funded by an outside source and not by Airway Management. We believe in the ability of our products to help patients sleep better, and we’re proud to know that the experts do, too.
